Daughter Saw Me Take A ShowerThis is partly accidental but it wasn't really planned. I was getting clothes ready for work the next day when my teenage daughter came into the bedroom and sat herself down in a big comfy chair that faces the master bathroom. The bathroom does have double doors that can be closed off to give privacy but they stay open most of the time. So anyway there I was getting ready for bed and after I finished ironing I announced that I was about to get a shower and told my daughter she needed to have her homework finished. That was my queue for her to leave the room. Instead she simply kept looking at the computer she had picked up from the night stand and was busy reading something online.
I walked into the bathroom and turned the shower water on. Normally I would have just closed the double doors and ignored her. Tonight something clicked. I just remembered a conversation I had overheard between her and her friend. Her friend was talking about trying on jeans with her mom and my daughter said, "Did you see her (Her friend's mom) in her underware?" Her friend replied "O, I see my mom naked all the time. We're family." My daughter commented back that she never saw here mom naked. Well, I'm hardly a mom and have lots of different body parts, but thought "Well, who cares just get in the shower and don't act weird about nudity. My wife is never going to let our daughter experience casual nudity so I guess it's up to me." Maybe it was something in her voice the other day but I got the feeling she was unsure about if seeing a parent naked was odd or not.
The water was on and the doors were still open. My daughter sat right there in the same place and never moved. She just kept focused on the computer. From her position she couldn't see into the actual shower, but she could see the entire master bathroom. I ******** down to my underwear and walked over to the clothes hamper and threw my jeans and shirt in. My daughter looked up and there I was in my underwear. Not only did she not bl
I finished the shower, dried off, and put on some pajamas. I walked out into the dining room where she was working on her homework. She didn't say a word about seeing me naked and just asked if I could help her with some of the math questions. In my mind I sighed with relief. I didn't expect a comment about me taking a shower and I wasn't trying to scare her, just trying to let her know that nudity isn't odd and doesn't have to be uncomfortable. I'm not going to walk around the house naked or anything but nudity is normal and I don't think people should freak out about it when it happens in expected places like taking a shower for instance. She seemed her normal usual self this morning. I'll be amused if she hangs out in my bedroom again in the evening any time soon but perhaps it didn't shock her at all. Who knows but I can't ask her about it or mention it or it defeats the whole purpose which is that nudity is a non-event that happens every day.
I'm sure some will judge me but it wasn't planned or thought out. It just happened that way and personally it's not really that big of a deal. Please don't confuse this with sexual activity if you're going to make comments. This was nothing to do with that.
